Greece Said Ready to Privatize Kalamata Airport, 21 Others Next

KALAMATA – After the sell-off of a major stake in 14 regional airports in 2017 to a consortium led by the German management company Fraport, Greece is reportedly going to put Kalamata regional airport on the list among 22 more to be privatized.

The first sell-off faced lengthy delays and the coming effort hinges on a deal over Kalamata being reached first, said CAPA-Centre for Aviation, which noted how successful the first round of privatizing smaller airports was.

“The interest shown in the transaction will be a pointer to what the government can expect in the bigger deal later,” the site said, adding that no date has been set or timetable for the privatization.

The regional airports proved to be busy in 2022 as key points for what looks to be a record tourism year, the New Democracy government trying to get visitors to more spots around the country.
